just a quick and last reply, I do not want to kill the thread.BLACKJACK wrote:Intresting, never noticed such tendency, perhaps you dont know that you have to ride MAKO with equell foot preasure and duck stance, if you ride back foot heavy like Nobile of course it will bounce.
Apart from massive concave smoothing any chop that balanced foot preasure makes MAKO unique and so comfortable to ride, try to ride your Nobile for 5/6 hours and then MAKO, perhaps after that you understand the diffrence.
Maybe Nobile after few years reduced the spray, but to date they cant make proper pads and straps, since that fact alone I would never try any Nobile boards, at the same time on MAKO you have top stuff on par with FLYBOARDS, SPLEENE,LF such pads and straps contribute to great ride as well.
If I am right, you did not have a go on the nobile 2010? the pads are amonst the best you can have right now, I had Spleene/ Nobile 2008/ 2009, I had OR ZEN 2009/ Mako 2009 and their pads are not bad...but again the Nobile 2010 are completely different not to compare.
I can tell you I missa bit the easyness of just pushing the Mako into stance and back...but for the rest I do not have to miss the Mako, as for the NHP 2010 it is much easier to hold your rail! believe me , try it and be honest...
